Learning Out Of The Box


Parents, it's time to take learning to another level!

We are living in the age of computers, MP3's, Blue rays and iPads and there isn't any reason these items should be used to help your child learn.

Overwhelmed? Not sure where to start or begin? I have listed a few wonderful DVDs, applications for iPad and websites that should help to point you in the right direction.

iPads and iPhones provide great opportunities for learning and fun

There are many applications and games available that will help children learn their numbers, letters of the alphabet and help improve reading skills. It is easy to find these educational applications, just got to the “App store” on either your iPad or iPhone and type in “educational for kids “ in the search box. The results will be plentiful. Just in case you need a little help navigating, here are a few of my favorites:

 

TouchyBooks Kid’s Interactive Books

Grover’s Number Special

Monkey Preschool Lunchbox

Math Puppy – Bingo Challenge

and my absolute favorite…..

STARFALL ABC’s

Check out any of these apps with your child and enjoy the wonderful activities that combine technology and education in an irresistible format.
